    Default I've Lost Faith In This Organization..

    I gave up on the Leafs many years ago, i'm not crazy about soccer but the team absolutely blows, I'm from Hamilton, so I don't like the Marlies, all that's left is my passion for the raptors, which is slowly dying..

    Do you have any advice/suggestions for me?

    Such as;
    -a new team to follow(without being a complete bandwagoner,so don't say "go jump on the Miami bandwagon, you tool!")
    -reasons that can help me to keep the faith in the Raptors
    -How Ujiri is different from his predecessors
    -Is Rudy Gay the wing we've been waiting for since the departure of one Vincent Lamar Carter
    -Why Valanciunas is the dominant center we've been waiting for
    -Why Dwane Casey is the guy moving forward
    -Why Andrea Bargnani was/is such a lazy c*nt
    -What is the meaning of life
    -Why does it hurt when I pee(That's a question for you Heinz)
    -Why aren't there more girls on here(self-explanatory, really)
    -New movies(I haven't watched a good one in a while)
    -How to stop being such a massive troll
    -Who would win in a fight; A midget or Billy Madison
    -Who would win in a fight; Billy Madison or the mascot that eats the cheerleaders


    Ok. I'm done messing around. Seriously, though. If I'm a fan and I'm losing hope. What are some reasons that give me renewed hope in this team?

    There is only so much losing one can take before jumping ship..or at least before you become a closet fan.

    Well I'm pretty sure I've been through a lot more losing years than you have and my fandom is as strong as ever. So when you say 'one', you mean 'You'. Lol

    dude you haven't even given management a chance yet. We are at year 1, and we have no indication what direction ujiri wants to take this team.

    Do you have any advice/suggestions for me?
    Check out the original theme song to MASH...not the TV show though, the movie


    -a new team to follow(without being a complete bandwagoner,so don't say "go jump on the Miami bandwagon, you tool!") I'm going to be watching a lot of Timberwolves BBALL this year, I like how they are built.


    -reasons that can help me to keep the faith in the Raptors
    You just need to keep faith with the Raptors, and know that the almighty Raptors have a plan that is beyond our understanding

    -How Ujiri is different from his predecessors
    He's black

    -Is Rudy Gay the wing we've been waiting for since the departure of one Vincent Lamar Carter
    He may not be the hero we are waiting for but he is the one we deserve

    -Why Valanciunas is the dominant center we've been waiting for
    Because he appears to have done more work to his body in one summer than Bargs did in 7 years

    -Why Dwane Casey is the guy moving forward
    Not sure. What did he say to you? Does he like you? I'd say don't rush into things with him. Older men are tricky

    -Why Andrea Bargnani was/is such a lazy c*nt
    His psychopathy makes it hard for him to care about anything

    -What is the meaning of life
    Whatever meaning you give it.

    -Why does it hurt when I pee(That's a question for you Heinz)
    Stop holding your thumb over the tip and attempting to spray girls with it

    -Why aren't there more girls on here(self-explanatory, really)
    See above

    -New movies(I haven't watched a good one in a while)
    Elysium was good

    -How to stop being such a massive troll
    SLIMFAST should assist in you being a less massive troll

    -Who would win in a fight; A midget or Billy Madison
    A Midget - can go inside and work the body

    -Who would win in a fight; Billy Madison or the mascot that eats the cheerleaders
    Mascot - Athletic advantage

    Maybe he's loving the thought of Frank Zappa lyrics, that you brought up with his song title "Why Does It Hurt When I Pee?", being used for in-game musical offerings?

    If the name were to change to Huskies, like some want, they could also use the song with the lyrics " Watch out where the Huskies go, and don't you eat that yellow snow"

    In fact there's all kinds of Zappa lyrics that would be perfect!
    When fans are booing, the could play "Broken hearts are for assholes"
    When the dancing girls are on the floor, they could play "Crew Slut"

    All kinds of good stuff

    1. - When it comes to b-ball - do what what everyone else is doing - taking a vacation
    2. - Buy an alarm clock - Set it for September 27th(training camp) - go to sleep
    3. - Ujiri is better because he is newer - enjoy the new GM smell !
    4. - Don't have faith in the Raptors? - just enjoy the drama opcorn:
    5. - Ujiri is not going to tear it down in a day/will not build it in a day - he's not an trade adrenaline junkie like BC
    6. - Find a 2nd favourite team - I've got BC Lions/Argos and Canucks/Habs as my 1/2 - that's depth!


    There ya go - That'll tide you over until November 1, 2013 when reals answer will be given

    We're going in the complete wrong direction. The only hope is that we can resign Bargnani to a smaller contract when his time in NY is up, and work towards natural organic growth
